Commercial Roofing & Restoration
Hail was so thick it covered Oconomowoc, WI, like a snowstorm on Friday, June 10th, and impacted commercial buildings need immediate commercial roof inspection services. RestoreMasters has emergency roof repair crews at the scene, ready to assist with leaking roofs and conduct a thorough commercial roof inspection.
Videos posted on social media called the severe weather event an “insane” amount of hail, causing automobile and roof damage. Commercial building owners and managers are urged to request a complimentary roof inspection to fast-track hail damage insurance claims to cover the cost of prompt roof leak repair and replacement.
A local hailstorm damage map shows a concentrated front stretching from Oconomowoc up Route 67 and as far south as I-94. The yellow section indicates hail upwards of 1.25 inches covering the region. The dense orange section over Oconomowoc shows ice chunks up to 1.75 inches in diameter, pounding neighborhoods, and business districts.
Hail and damage images and videos shared on social media:
“A strong thunderstorm developed in northwest Waukesha County Friday evening around 5:30 pm and kept back-building over the Oconomowoc area,” according to the National Weather Service. “The storm dropped accumulating hail, with some hail stones as large as golf balls! Hail fell for 20 to 30 minutes. The area received 2.5 inches of rain within a two-hour period of time. Localized street flooding was observed, mainly due to hail clogging storm drains.”
The Friday, June 10th, tornado, high wind, and hail damage map published by the National Weather Service shows a hailstorm cluster specifically targeting Oconomowoc, WI, and the surrounding area. All told, there were 78 high wind incidents, one tornado, and 15 hailstorm reports for the day. A range of social media and traditional news reports demonstrate Waukesha County took the brunt of the hailstorm.
- Lac La Belle: Hailstones the size of half-dollars cracked shingles and dented metal roofing systems.
- Oconomowoc: Golf ball-sized hail relentlessly pelted automobiles and rooftops for 20-30 minutes.
It’s imperative that commercial buildings undergo a comprehensive commercial roof inspection following a hailstorm. The dents and cracks left after the storm passes invite water damage and hazardous mold growths. By promptly utilizing commercial roof inspection services, property owners can expedite insurance claims to cover the cost of necessary hail damage roof repair.
Taking proactive measures to correct roof storm damage can save tens of thousands of dollars on building restoration and remediation later. RestoreMasters recently dispatched commercial roof repair experts to Worthington, Minnesota, on May 28, 2022, to provide material support following a devastating hailstorm.
Some roofing systems can be severely harmed by damage from heavy winds, tornadoes, or hail. Older roofs are susceptible to severe wind damage, by winds as low as 50 mph. Several factors will determine the severity of roof damage: the height of the building and proximity to nearby structures, the quality of work by the original installers, the shape and angle of the roof, the age and type of roofing materials, and the impact from debris.
